The stocks are inviting, but real

Oil may sidetrack the public in

the dividend payers will keep right

the position of the industry.
The copper world is now taking
strong notice of Mason Valley and
figuring another great producer for
Nevada. Contact and others will
come later, falling in line under the
lead of the'Ely district. And in ten
years more the Nevada group under
this leadership will be standing at
the head of the copper producing di
visions of the country.

After lapse of twenty years Sir
Robert Anderson, for many years the
official adviser of the British Home
Office or Secret Service, has made a
big stir by confessing that he was
the author of the series of articles
in the London Times on "Parnellism
and Crime,” the purpose of which
was to try to bring Parnell and other
Irish leaders to the gallows by ac
cusing them with complicity in the
Proenix Park and other Irish agrar
ian murders. The articles were cred
ited at the time to Rchard Piggotr
After a commission of three high
Judges had exonerated Parnell, Pig
gott confessed that ne did not write
the articles, fled and killed himself.
Now the Irish party is pressing the
government to investigate all the
circumstances and the Tories are dis- j
conceited ny this revival of a scan
dal in which their party was con
cerned. Asquith, in the Commons
last week referred to Anderson’s
confession, and while condemning
his course said no good could come
from an inquiry now.
Confirmation of the reported dis
covery of a new substance to prolong
life by Dr. Doyen, the famous Paris
physician, has been cabled from the
doctor himself. He says that the
substance, which he calls mycoly
sine, is now available to duly au
thenticated American physicians for
test and experiment if they apply
through the American embassy at
Parts. Dr. Doyen says further that
four weeks will suffice to convince
the American doctors of the value
of this discovery provided the ex
periments are conducted intelligently
and faithfully and not with incur
ables who are already near death. He
asserts positively that his discovery
will prolong human life from 15 to
20 years and that most diseases of
the respiratory organs and digestive
tract will disappear, also cancer of
the skin. Mycolysine, which is a word
meaning "germ solvent,” is composed
of colloids, which are fine particles of
insoluble substances, but how de
rived the doctor does not say, but in
dicates that they are extracted from
the ferments of alcohol and from
putrid fats. These colloids have the
quality of causing rapid destruction
of poisonous microbes by increasing
the number of white corpuscles (pha
gocytes), which act as natural scav
engers and destroy the disease mi
crobes. Then, their work done, the
The Agricultural Department is is
suing instructions how to cook tough
meat unttf it is tender. The recipe
should begin like the famous one for
cooking a hare. The first step in
teaching the American people this
thing is to convince them that they
have to buy tough meat.

has decided that the Louisville and

The strength in the stock market
since the order for a reargument in !
the Tobacco and Standard Oil cases
has reflected the relief to speculative
sentiment, and as a result there has
been short covering to a very con
siderable extent to account for the
advance in the prices. To what
extent the large interests have aid
ed the advance is not plain, but there
is some reason for believing that the
banking interests are favorable to a
strong market because they have
plans for financing the needs of the
railways and other large corpora
tions, and in carrying out such plans
a strong market is always an aid. It
is clear that if we are to have large
crops and business is to be active for
the balance of the year, that the rail
ways will need additional cars and
I locomotives and other facilities. The
estimates of such men as James J.
Hill indicate that annual expendi
tures by the railways in order to
maintain their facilities and take
care of the increased traffic offered,
must mount up to enormous figures.
It will obviously require a period
of confidence and easy money to
properly finance such expenditures,
and for that reason alone, the con
stant agitation against the railways
is to be regretted. Fortunately the
outlook at Washington does not indi
cate that there will be any drastic
legislation, and that the leading rail-j
way interests are entirely satisfied
with the amendments to the inter
state commerce law introduced at
the instigation of the administration.
So far as the legislative situation is
conuerned therefore, the conditions
are better than they have been for
the past few years. The most favor
able news last week was the improve
ment in the condition of the crops.
This is a mntter of the highest im
portance and unless the season
should develop abnormal weather
conditions we shall harvest large*
crops and they will go a long way
toward solving the troublesome ques
tions of the day, such as that of the
unfavorable foreign trade conditions
and the high cost of living.
High prices are not altogether a
question of the tariff, the trusts or
the size of the crops, but they are
i all factors of more or less Impor
tance. One factor is undoubtedly
the Increased demand for the various
commodities caused by the increase
in population and the large wealth
of the people, including the higher
wages paid to labor. It is true also
that the manufacturing industries
have attracted a larger and larger
percentage of the population, and
that the proportion engaged in agri
cultural pursuits has been growing
comparatively small. Thus there is
a constant decrease in the amount
of foodstuff available for export. It
may be doubted if under the circum
stances we can look for crops large
ienough to restore our foreign trade
balance to the old favorable eon
i dition, but good crops would at least
serve to offset our purchases abroad.
The foreign trade statement for
the last month showed an actual ex
cess of imports over exports and al
though the exports of gold were
stopped by the sale of Lake Shore
notes abroad, it is the opinion of
I bankers that unless European In
vestors continue to take our securi
j ties, we shall lose more of the
i precious metal. This will raise the
question of to what extent money
1 rates will become a factor In the
speculation, for the reserves of the
New York banks are not so large but
that further gold exports will make
a hole in them unless funds contin
ue to come east front the interior.
The banks in the west, however, are
said to be pretty well loaned up on
wheat and grains, so that the move
ment of the currency east at this
season is not expected to be as large
as usual. It does not scent there
fore, that the money situation is
such as to warrant the bullish specu
laton in stocks that is looked for in
! certain quarters.
The situation is complicated fur
ther by the political conditions in
tJreat Britain, and until the Budget
is passed the government must be a
heavy borrower for running ex
penses. Furthermore, the directors
of the Bank of Kngland will wish to
get the institution in a strong posi
tion and notwithstanding the gain in
the condition a week ago, the reserve
is not up to the average for this
season even when conditions are
normal. It Is evident that we have
safely passed the crisis among tlie
labor element on the railways, but
on the other hand there is danger
that voluntary advance in wages by
the United States Steel Corporation
may result in a general movement
on the part of labor and cause
troubles here and there for employ
ers not able to stand the increased
expense. It is not strange that there
is a note of conservatism in Im
portant quarters which speculators
will do well to heed, even though for
the moment the market shows an
upward trend.—Boston Financial

Mr. J. G. Driscoll,
Dear Sir:—A certain unsworn doc
ument has been handed to the board
of commissioners for the Hospital for
Mental Disease, by lieutenant and
Acting Governor Dickerson, purport
ing to be charges preferred by you
against Dr. 8. C. Gibson, superintend
ent of the said hospital. As these
charges must be sworn to before we
can hear or determine the same, we
hereby notify you that we will give
you ten days from today within which
to swear to the charges you have
made and a date will then be imme
diately set for hearing of the same,
and all parties interested given an
opportunity to be heard. As these
charges reflect on the integrity and
ability of the present superintendent
who has been in charge of said insti
tution for the past five years, anil are
of grave and serious nature which
call for criminal action against said
superintendent, if the charges be
proven true, or a criminal prosecu
tion against you for criminal libel
and slander if not true, we trust
that you will be as prompt to sub
stantiate your charges under oath as
you have been to publish them with
out being sworn to and without the
knowledge of the board, to the end
that we may know officially if the
public servant has been recreant to
his trust or not, and that the public
know the truth or falsity of the said
charges preferred by you.
As Lieutenant and Acting Govern
or Dickerson declares he will not per
form his offii ial duties regarding mat
ters pertaining to the said hospital
and he has declared that he will have
nothing further to uo with the insti
tution which by law he is authorized
and required to do, and act with us
in the supervision of the same.
We the undersigned representing
the majority of the said board will
discharge our duty as required by law
Irrespective of the action of the lieu
tenant and acting governor. There
fore any communications you have
regarding this matter you will ad
dress to either of the undersigned,
to the end that the matter may be
cleared up at the earliest possizlfe
